We came in with higher expectations. The $45 price point was affordable and we should have probably expected and average to low experience, but this was a place known well for great seafood. The food overall was average. The only raw bar items were shrimp that were not really cleaned well and oysters a little gritty. Unfortunately the rest of... More

An amazingly good seafood experience in Schaumburg. The extensive fresh seafood menu is too lengthy to experience in a couple of dozen visits, so I'll share the Stone Crab. AMAZING!!! Firm, sweet XL claws never disappoint. My business guest and I enjoyed a wonderful meal, exceptional service. Caesar salad was equally satisfying. Always make it a point to stop by... More

I'm a huge fan of the Shaws in Chicago and used to dine there all the time when I lived close by. I was excited to see a new location in the burbs. I've been to this location a couple times already and have had a pleasant time. I go right to the Oyster Bar for a more lively vibe.... More

This place has great seafood and a great atmosphere. The server was especially nice. The place was not too loud.

While in Schaumburg i was craving seafood so i decided to give Shaw's a try. I absolutely loved the classic 60's feel with high bar stools, diner booths and just its rustic feel. The BB King tunes were flowing and it just felt like a good place to be. They were pretty busy, but from the size of the place... More

Our first visit to Shaw's and it was special for a special occasion; wish I had saved it for the official "birthday dinner". We had the gumbo and lobster bisque; both were full of seafood and very tasty. Next we shared the Alaskan King Crab Legs which the birthday boy had never had...they were delicious, pared with a spinach and... More

1st visit to Shaws. Parking required us to park a short walk away in the shared parking lot as spots near the building was full. We ate in the oyster bar area, not the main dining room, sitting at a booth. Seating was prompt at 6PM on a Tuesday. I had a 1/2 dozen oyster sampler to start. Served as... More

We visited for lunch. My husband had the Shaw's Fish & Chips and I had Maryland Style Crab Cakes. Shaw's crab cakes & service are consistently the best!!! My husband said his fish & chips were just ok. Our service was impeccable. Our water glasses were continually refilled. Our waiter provided attentive service while not being overbearing. You must experience... More

It was amazingly busy at 12:15 on a Sunday. The brunch looked incredible, however we were not looking for that much food. It looked so incredibly delicious that I will have to go back and try it.

Thank cake
